5 of the Best from Corrie's History This Week

(This post was originally posted by Flaming Nora on the Coronation Street Blog July 2017, reposted to this blog with permission.)

Corriepedia is a wonderful site. If you haven't visited it, please do.

Every day on Twitter the guys who run Corriepedia look back at a handful of storylines which took place on this day in a different year of Coronation Street's history.

And so each Sunday from today onwards, I'm going to be taking a look at my personal favourite five storylines from those which Corriepedia have alerted us to during the week.

I hope you enjoy these short and sweet looks down memory lane.
